Asphalt 9: Legends – Your Ultimate Guide to Win Every Race

Gameloft’s Asphalt series has grown from a simple handheld game to a highly acclaimed racing franchise that houses nine installments and five spinoffs. The success of the franchise comes mostly from the game’s accessibility elements that make driving an enjoyable experience rather than a calculated and tense-filled challenge. With that said, it does not mean that the game is not packed with enough challenges for competitive players out there as each installment in the series comes with its own unique challenges. Thus, allowing the player to enjoy a worry-free driving experience as much as possible.

Speaking of a worry-free driving experience, Asphalt 9: Legends, which is the latest installment in the series, comes with all the best elements and mechanics from its predecessors. It also comes with a new feature called “touch controls,” in addition to the traditional keyboard and joystick controls. Thus, making driving accessible to players from various platforms. If you are new to the game, then feel free to check out our short guide below to help you achieve your first wins in the game.

Asphalt 9 Game

Understanding How Asphalt 9: Legends Work

The gameplay mechanics of Asphalt 9: Legends plays similarly to arcade games. However, the game itself does not provide a straightforward racing experience unlike the recent titles in the racing genre that comes with third-person characters and NPCs as part of the main narrative. Instead, Asphalt 9 provides players with a straightforward racing experience—no buts, no cuts, no coconuts. Moreover, as mentioned before, the game provides players with multiple options like a keyboard, joystick, and new touch controls.

Touch controls are the new control scheme introduced in Asphalt 9. In fact, they are the default control scheme of the game. Now, do not be confused by the word “touch” as this scheme is compatible with keyboards. Furthermore, the touch controls make driving fun and exciting because all you need to worry about is braking and going into nitro since the car will have automatic acceleration and steering. So if you’re a casual gamer who just wants to satisfy your need for speed, then the touch controls are something that you should check out.

Winning Races in Asphalt 9: Legends

Like most free-to-play arcade racing games, achieving your first victory is a piece of cake in the first part of the game, especially if you are using touch controls. Using the default control scheme will allow you to plow through the first stage or level without a sweat. Furthermore, it will also up your chances of winning by 70 percent, which is already favorable, to say the least.
Now, if you want to increase your chances of winning by 90 percent or even 100, then you must have a solid plan or strategy on your overall approach and allocate your resources properly. Unless you have a lot of money to spare, you can simply buy your way to the top.

Strategic Approach on Game Modes & Events

Your driving skills are the least of your concern in Asphalt 9. As mentioned before, using the touch controls already increases your chances of winning by 70 percent. The 30 percent relies on your strategic approach to the various game modes and events in the game. With that said, below are some of the things you must consider when playing Asphalt 9: Legends:

  • All the levels/stages in “My Career” are rank-and car-dependent. Having a lower rank than the level requires will still allow you to play, as long as you have the required vehicle. However, your chances of winning are slim. But if you do not have the car required, you cannot play a specific stage or level, unless there is a free trial event.
  • Watching ads and replaying levels are some of the best ways to earn credits.
  • Upgrading your car will increase your Garage Level, which in turn, will allow you to access even more cars.
  • Completing daily goals will reward you with tokens and blueprints.
  • Daily, limited, and weekly events provide unique blueprints and a generous amount of tokens/credits.
  • Multiplayer events are a great way to rank up and acquire reputation points.
  • My Club provides generous rewards for every milestone.
  • Nitro has three levels: Normal, Perfect, and Shockwave.
  • Clicking the drift button twice will initiate a stunt move.
  • Collecting flags in My Career will provide access to more events.

Ultimately, the most effective, and perhaps the best way, to win races in Asphalt 9: Legends is to enjoy the game. Learn the basic rules of the game and just enjoy the ride. Always remember that it’s just a game, plain and simple.
